Type of opportunity:
Human Factors has a crucial role in maintaining Babcock’s high safety standards – whether it’s nuclear, radiological, conventional or environmental safety. Over the course of two or four years, you will work across a range of teams, projects and facilities, providing the full breadth of your specialist knowledge to make a positive contribution to safe operations.
Places on our Human Factors/Behavioural Safety programme for Autumn 2020 are available in our Marine and Cavendish Nuclear sector. But no matter which team you join, you could be based anywhere in the UK. That’s why we ask all our graduates to be flexible and willing to move during their programme.
Working as part of multidisciplinary teams, you’ll ensure that we set our staff up for success in terms of having the right equipment, working environment, knowledge, procedures and organisational support to do their jobs safely. You will undertake a wide variety of challenging and exciting projects that cover the full design and safety lifecycle, from concept development through to construction, in-service support and decommissioning, as well as incident investigation and reporting and learning from events. There will also be the opportunity to be involved in training, sharing and learning from events, developing safety culture and safety engagement.
We’ll match your passions to your skills to help you build a rewarding career as a versatile and highly competent Human Factors professional. When you’re playing such an important role, you need great support to develop – and that’s what you can expect. As well as professional mentoring, we’ll give you the experience needed to become a Chartered Ergonomist and Human Factors Specialist. You’ll also be starting on a competitive salary of £29k - £31k.
You’ll need a 2:1 BSc (Hons) degree in a Human Factors, Ergonomics or related behavioural science subject (e.g. Applied Psychology, Cognitive Science or Systems Engineering). Please note: for the Marine programme in Devonport, the entry requirements are a 2:2 degree. You’ll also need to satisfy the MOD’s security requirements (and may need to complete a medical assessment).
